Yesterday I pretty much took my day off to do nothing. But after lunch, I had to have a few minutes shop time. So the stub shaft on the Yanmar engine needed machining. The engine came out of a John Deere Gator & the stub was tapered for the belt clutch. When this engine goes into my Massey w/loader, I need the stub to hold a pulley to drive my hydraulic pump. So I chucked the stub in my lathe & turned down to 1". Then I put it in my end mill & using a keyway cutter, machined in the key slot. Going to be a while likely before fitting the diesel in the tractor, but at least this part is ready.

I made the drive shaft adapter for this same project (below) a few weeks ago with the same 2 tools. I could not do hardly any of my projects without these machining tools!

Those look great Daniel. What's the adapter made of? Thats quite a complex bit of machining on the adapter.

Thats some very nice work Dan. Maybe some day I'll get some tools like that then I'll have to take some course on how to use them or I should say refresher course been 35+ yrs since using a milling machine.LOL Larry.

It looks like aluminum, but it's actually a higher grade steel. Started as a piece that came in a set of cylinder sleeve pullers from an auction. Not machined for sleeve pulling, so I suppose it was just a blank to be custom machined for a certain sleeve.
